Almond Orange Cupcakes
Ingredients:
Cupcakes
Buttercream
Method:
Cupcakes
  1. Preheat the oven to 160C.
  2. In medium-sized bowl, whisk the eggs, egg yolk and milk. Melt the butter and then whisk the butter into the eggs.
  3. Add the softened sour cream until smooth.
  4. Add the almond flour and orange juice, whisk until it forms a smooth batter.
  5. The batter should be thin. If it is still a little thick add some more orange juice or milk. Pour batter into a muffin pan prepared with paper liners. Fill liners to about 2/3 full.
  6. Bake cupcakes in pre heated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until they are just slightly golden brown on the edges and a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
  7. Cool in the pan 1-2 minutes, then remove cupcakes from pan (carefully) and finish cooling on a wire rack.
  8. Cool fully (about an hour) before frosting
Buttercream
  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, equipped with the whisk attachment, whip the butter on medium speed until it reaches a completely smooth consistency, which should take around 30 seconds to a minute.
  2. Introduce the cream cheese into the mixture and continue to whip until it becomes smooth.
  3. Gradually add 1/2 cup of Lakanto pure icing powder.
  4. Incorporate the vanilla and salt into the mixture.
  5. Blend thoroughly until all the ingredients are fully combined and the mixture becomes beautifully smooth and fluffy.
  6. Don't forget to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  7. Once ready, transfer the delightful frosting into a pastry bag and artfully pipe it onto the fully cooled cupcakes.
